Stocks Rebound Ahead of NFP

Author:   |    Publish date:


Stocks rebound ahead of NFP. US stocks pared earlier losses on Thursday after sentiments improved on news of China’s re-opening soon. Nasdaq (+2.69%) made the biggest gain, followed by Russell (+2.31%), S&P (+1.84%) and Dow (+1.33%) while the Dollar eased back below the 101.80 barrier. Treasuries were little changed as the inversions remain between the 5Y (2.92%), 7Y (2.95%) and 10Y (2.91%).

In the commodities market, crude dipped to $109.90/bl after news of OPEC production increase but Dollar weakness and decrease in inventories spiked the black gold to close above $116/bl. Dollar weakness sent gold higher and closed above $1868.35/oz while iron ore climbed to $137.00/tn before easing to settle at $136.95/tn.

In the FX space, Aussie seized the helm of demand from Loonie as Yen was synching on offers across all horizons. Overall sentiments were bearish as more Swiss were in demand than the Dollar and Yen.

On Friday, markets may look to scoop some bargains while looking forward to earning reports from BRP Inc (DOOO), Cango Inc (CANG) and Yatra (YTRA) as well as the much awaited US non-farm payroll figures and latest condition in the labor markets.

OUR PICK – No New Picks

No new picks going into the weekend. Another week of outflow from US equity for $2.3 billion despite the rebound and outflows from money markets for about $12.5 billion. We were seeing inflows into taxable bond funds in meager $260 million but close to $4.8 billion into high yield funds; meaning investors are consistently looking for higher yields to offset inflation. We suspect inflation might have peaked for a while but is sticky.

Trades updates: 

Equities:  We remain bullish T (12% undervalued, 5.23% yields) while VIPS (32% undervalued with 4.78 z-score), CRON (24% undervalued with 27.69 z-score), WBA (27% undervalued, 4.42% yields) and M (47% undervalued, 2.70% yields) offer better opportunity for long term investors.

FX & Commodities: We remain bullish EUR/CHF.
